In The Silicon Tropic

By South Florida entrepreneurs, for South Florida entrepreneurs. All things tech in the sunny Silicon Tropic.

Something Awesome: Bookicious

We are huge fans of books on business and startups. If you read them and actually retain and apply the information, it can actually help you. Our favorites (in no particular order):

  1. The Lean Startup by Eric Ries
  2. Crossing the Chasm by Geoffrey A. Moore
  3. How Google Works by Eric Schmidt & Jonathan Rosenberg
  4. Zero to One by Peter Thiel
  5. Contagious by Jonah Berger
  6. The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz
  7. Exponential Organizations: Why new organizations are ten times better, faster, and cheaper than yours (and what to do about it) by Salim Ismail

But we’re not Bill Gates, and our startups are hardly profitable. So if our list isn’t good enough for you, Bookicious is the ultimate collection. Broken down by entrepreneur, you can check out what Mark Zuckerberg recommends and what Marissa Mayer recommends, and more, all in one spot.  As if Marc Andreessen doesn’t tweet enough about what he likes, his list is there too.

We’re excited for: The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future by Kevin Kelly

Honorable mention: Bill Gates’ list of the best books he read in 2015 is pretty solid too, according to people on twitter who read a lot of books.
